Hey gang, hope all is well with you.
Here is the spatula I made from my new blog (Pallet wood, spokeshave and a Stanley 35) I hope you might enjoy seeing some of the pics of how this was made. If so please check out the blog.
It was a real workout…lol believe me…and just a skills challenge for myself….to see what I have learned so far.
I think also using the Stanely 35…and getting it set up for working was nice. I just cannot really get into the idea of buying these old handtools and not breaking them back in again. For me….if it’s able…that old tool was meant to be used…not hung up like a relic..lol
I kinda laugh when these newer woodwork shows have a bowsaw on the wall…like a fossil of days gone by…..even though I realize in the business aspect of the last 50 or more years it really is just that…lol. So I speak in hobbiest terms only.
My thoughts are also….there at some point was a craftsmen…..that once used this….and dam….I need to pay it back and get that ole plane up and running again..or at least try to.
So here is what my piece of pallet wood transformed into….I hope this may be of interest to some of ya!
Take care and thanks so much for the inspiration and great comments,
